From Portland, Oregon, A Weather are here for your listening pleasure. The indie-folk unit will release tomorrow, March 2, their forthcoming sophomore album Everyday Balloons, on Team Love Records (the label founded by Conor Oberst/Bright Eyes).
“Giant Stairs” is their new single from the upcoming album and the hushed-pop of this track has all of the charm and soft arrangement that made their debut, Cove, so entrancingly great.
Their new album was once again recorded by engineer Adam Selzer (M. Ward, The Decemberists, Norfolk & Western) at Portland’s Type Foundry Studios, Everyday Balloons is propelled by the restrained yet unmistakable power of A Weather’s songs. This singular quality recalls critical recognition of Cove, of which NPR’s ‘Song of the Day’ observed, “In the band’s hands, a sigh is far more compelling than a scream”, while the album also garnered high praise from Pitchfork (“…A Weather are, quite literally, a quiet storm”) as well as Nylon, Spin.com, Popmatters, and The New York Daily News, among others.
